Bike Corrals

Bike corrals are rows of CityRacks installed in the curbside lane of the street instead of on the sidewalk. This design is a great solution for places where demand for bicycle parking outstrips the available sidewalk space. Anyone can request a bike corral but every bike corral needs a maintenance partner to keep the bike corral clear of snow and debris.

Bike Corral Applications

Potential maintenance partners may be businesses, community groups and individual volunteers. DOT meets with applicants and determines if bike corrals are appropriate by measuring the potential sites and assessing the demand for bike parking. DOT designs bike corrals specific to their sites. Some designs include large planter pots, which are also maintained by the partner. DOT then presents proposed bike corrals to the local Community Board. Download the bike corral application (pdf)
